  1. In a large bowl, mix mince, cheese, herbs, onion, egg, breadcrumbs and sauce.
  2. Make into 8 even-sized hamburger patties.
  3. Spray a non-stick pan with a little cooking oil.
  4. Cook hamburgers in the pan for about 7 minutes on each side until cooked (burgers are cooked when juices run clear and they are no longer pink in the middle). Cook on a moderate heat so they don't burn on the outside before they cook on the inside.
  5. Serve burgers on toasted hamburger buns with salad, grated carrot, onion rings and sliced beetroot.
